Claude

Huh... What a magnificent tale! It's enough to make your head spin.

Claude

Rhea's real identity is Saint Seiros, and the one who attacked us was Nemesis, the King of Liberation!

Claude

On top of that, you've got the heart of the goddess in you! My flabber is completely gasted right now.

Claude

But now isn't the time for standing around in disbelief. Nemesis has made it this far for a reason.

Claude

If we aren't victorious, that's it for Fódlan's new dawn. The world will be forever shrouded in darkness...

Claude

This is the final, FINAL battle. Finally. My friend... Please give it your all out there!

Ferdinand

Ferdinand

The javelins of light that destroyed Fort Merceus... They are what destroyed Shambhala.

Ferdinand

They were trying to shroud the city in darkness.

Ferdinand

Perhaps they were planning to swallow us up in that same darkness.

Ferdinand

Maybe the javelins of light were a signal to Nemesis. To awaken him from his long slumber.

Ferdinand

What do you think, Professor?

Ferdinand

Yes, indeed. I have done some good pondering here.

Ferdinand

Oh! Really? Hm. Maybe I got a couple of things wrong, but I thought I was pretty close...

Ferdinand

If we keep up this momentum, we will be able to take down Nemesis and restore peace in Fódlan.

Linhardt

Linhardt

When you think of it, as one approaches the end of a war, the sacrifices only grow larger, don't they?

Linhardt

The winning side musters their forces and attempts to strike a decisive blow...

Linhardt

While those of the losing side make desperate attempts to turn the war in their favor.

Linhardt

Neither side will give. I only wish we'd consider those who lose their lives in that struggle.

Linhardt

Yes, exactly my point. Let's be careful to ensure we don't lose our own lives, Professor.

Linhardt

Perhaps, but that doesn't make it any easier to accept your own survival depends on a throw of the dice.

Linhardt

I can appreciate that, but just because a choice is better does not mean that it's good.

Caspar

Caspar

Everyone in Fódlan's united, but the Whatstheirfaces in the Dark or whatever won't let up!

Caspar

Let's get rid of 'em right away!

Caspar

We gotta get some training in so we can crush 'em!

Caspar

I know that! Come on, let's go train so we can crush 'em!

Caspar

There's not a lot of time, but I'm afraid we won't win if we don't train!

Bernadetta

link
Bernadetta

The King of Liberation? The Fell King? His name is Nemesis, right?

Bernadetta

And he was hidden away for over a thousand years. Wow, that's a really long time all to himself...

Bernadetta

But that doesn't make him worth admiring, no matter how much I envy him!

Bernadetta

Um. Maybe. Is that a trick question?

Dorothea

link
Dorothea

I keep thinking the war is near its end, then it isn't...

Dorothea

When can we finally put this dreadful war behind us?

Dorothea

That would be wonderful. Imagine, the last moment of combat...then peace. It sounds like a fairy tale.

Dorothea

I want to make this a world where there is no fighting, where children can grow up happy and safe.

Dorothea

I suppose you're right...

Dorothea

But we should still try our best to make the world a place where children can grow up happy and safe.

Petra

link
Petra

I can feel a weight in the air. It is different from before.

Petra

I do not know this Nemesis person, except what I have been reading.

Petra

But I am not of Fódlan. My knowledge of this person is very little.

Petra

Even so, I feel that...I can understand it. I know that our enemy has great strength. I am...feeling great fear for this battle.

Petra

I have belief in you, Professor. Together, we will not be losing.

Petra

You have fear too?

Petra

You do not look like you do... I have gratitude... I mean, I am grateful that you told me.

Felix

link
Felix

The Fell King Nemesis. Hmph. I imagine he'll be a worthy opponent.

Felix

How many foes have tasted my blade? He will be an excellent finale.

Felix

We will be victorious, Professor.

Felix

Splendid. Let's do it.

Felix

I'm perfectly calm, thank you.

Ashe

link
Ashe

The King of Liberation wakes after a thousand-year slumber. Feels like I'm living a nightmare.

Ashe

You too? I hope you're not following my lead on this one, Professor!

Ashe

I know you're right, but it still doesn't feel real.

Ashe

Maybe this Nemesis who's attacking us isn't even the real thing.

Ashe

Either way, the damage and death he's causing are real enough.

Ashe

I will fight to protect those who need it.

Sylvain

link
Sylvain

Just when we think we're in the clear, the legendary Fell King resurrects. Who'd have thought it?

Sylvain

Can you handle this getting any weirder? I don't know if I can.

Sylvain

I don't know how much of this Nemesis guy is a legend and how much is true, but I know this...

Sylvain

I want to— I'm going to survive. I've spent this whole war afraid I'd die. Not anymore. I'm going to live.

Sylvain

I mean, I'll still fight like I want to die because that's worked so far, and why change at this late date, right?

Sylvain

And if I'm right and I don't die, would you go have dinner with me sometime?

Mercedes

link
Mercedes

We went through all that trouble to finish the war, and now we have to fight again?

Mercedes

What does this Nemesis fellow have against Garreg Mach anyway?

Mercedes

A vendetta against Garreg Mach? That doesn't make much sense at all.

Mercedes

Well, it doesn't make much sense to me either.

Mercedes

At any rate, I'll do what I can to defend the monastery and Lady Rhea.

Annette

link
Annette

Is Lady Rhea OK? She was quite weakened to start, and then she took all those heavy injuries...

Annette

I don't want to imagine it, but what will happen if Lady Rhea passes away like this?

Annette

I suppose you're right.

Annette

Yes. I'm praying every day that she'll get well as soon as possible.

Annette

Come what may, we should all combine our talents and defend the peace of Fódlan!

Ingrid

link
Ingrid

Shambhala is destroyed. But are they vanquished entirely, I wonder...

Ingrid

Just as Kronya took Monica's form, perhaps there are some others living above ground.

Ingrid

Once this battle is over, I still have much to see to.

Ingrid

But right now, I should focus on the task at hand. On Nemesis.

Ingrid

As long as Nemesis stands, both my future and the future of Fódlan hang in the balance.

Lorenz

link
Lorenz

A sudden invasion from Nemesis has plunged the Alliance territories into complete disarray.

Lorenz

Against such overwhelming strength, my father and his forces had no choice but to retreat.

Lorenz

It was certainly prudent for him to avoid a fruitless death. But as things stand, he will not leave much of an impression on history.

Lorenz

So that falls to me. I will do all that I can—for the future of Fódlan, and the glory of House Gloucester!

Raphael

link
Raphael

Hey, Professor! Have you heard from Claude?

Raphael

He says he's gonna throw a feast if we win the next battle! Enough food to clean out the stores!

Raphael

So I'm super motivated to win! I'm gonna train every muscle I got!

Raphael

I'm coming for you, Nemesis! I'm coming for you, feast!

Ignatz

link
Ignatz

I got the gist of it from Claude.

Ignatz

Those who slither in the dark... They seem to be descended from humans who were forced deep underground after the goddess defeated them.

Ignatz

I...I thought you knew. Yes, that's what I heard from Claude.

Ignatz

They were trying to wipe out the goddess and her followers in hopes of taking back the surface.

Ignatz

That's why they called themselves saviors. To their mind, they were.

Lysithea & Marianne

link
Lysithea

It seems that there are some Shambhala loyalists in Nemesis's forces.

Lysithea

As long as they're around, we can expect them to continue with their cruel experiments.

Lysithea

Yes. We have to. It's the only way to ensure nobody else will go through what I went through.

Lysithea

We must obliterate them in the next battle. It's the only recompense for Edelgard's death.

Marianne

link
Marianne

Just when we thought we'd made it to the end, another enemy approaches...

Marianne

Can we be sure this battle is the last one?

Marianne

Of course, there's no way to really know what will happen.

Marianne

I think you're right.

Marianne

Just a little further to the end. Come on, Professor. We have to win!

Hilda

link
Hilda

My big brother challenged Nemesis. He knew he couldn't win. He just did it so that his friends could escape.

Hilda

He emerged from the battle with a terrible injury. It's a miracle he didn't die.

Hilda

Yes. Me too.

Hilda

Well, maybe he should have been a little less noble. When you're dead, you're dead.

Hilda

Dying to save someone else...seems to defeat the purpose. I wouldn't do it.

Hilda

He's alive, and in spite of myself, I'm really proud of him.

Leonie

link
Leonie

So, we're defending Fódlan's future, huh? Kind of makes my mercenary ambitions feel pretty small.

Leonie

So I'll think about my promise to Captain Jeralt to protect you instead. That'll be my reason to fight.

Leonie

If I can get you through this in one piece, that's just as good as defending Fódlan's future, isn't it?

Leonie

I just hope he's watching.

Seteth

link
Seteth

Before the monastery was completed, there was a massive battle on the Tailtean Plains.

Seteth

In that battle, the warrior Seiros defeated the Fell King Nemesis and reclaimed the bones and heart of Sothis.

Seteth

Those make up the divine sword that you wield, and the Crest that you bear.

Seteth

Now, Rhea...Seiros...lies helpless. The only one who can defeat this so-called King of Liberation is the inheritor of divine power.

Seteth

You have our full and unwavering support. Only you can do this. Please, save this world.

Flayn

Flayn

Please keep quiet.

Flayn

Rhea is sleeping right now. She does not appear to be very well.

Flayn

I beg of you, please do everything you can to prevent an assault from Nemesis.

Hanneman

link
Hanneman

Shambhala... An underground city with an entirely different lineage than the goddess?

Hanneman

Strange phenomena, driven by a source totally alien to the Crests that we understand. Most unsettling!

Hanneman

Could it be magic? Some manner of technology? I would like to know the truth of it all. Very much so.

Hanneman

I want to know their history, their knowledge. Why do you suppose they chose this place to occupy?

Hanneman

I intend to carry out multiple excavations around the city. There is so much to learn!

Hanneman

Yet first we face battle with a king who has defied time. Hmm, yes. The excavations can wait, I think.

Manuela

Manuela

Life can be tough, you know? But if you've got your friends to help you through, it can be a lot easier.

Manuela

Maybe you butt heads sometimes...but that's OK. That's how you build bonds, right?

Manuela

And I've got friends, Professor. Plenty of those. It's true love that seems to have passed me by.

Manuela

Relax? I'm relaxed.

Manuela

But where is my true love to be found? Where is my ray of hope?

Manuela

Yeah... I'm starting to figure that's the most realistic option.

Manuela

At this point, you're the only man who pays attention to me. I guess I'll have to take what I can get.

Manuela

At this point, I'm just hoping you stay single too. Then at least we can share each other's misery!

Alois

link
Alois

We thought we'd taken down the mastermind of this war, and then the Fell King Nemesis shows up!

Alois

Well, no matter what evil creatures we have to face, this old soul will keep defending Garreg Mach.

Alois

Not only Garreg Mach though. Also Lady Rhea. Also you.

Alois

I think Jeralt would be saying the same kind of thing if he were here right now.

Catherine

link
Catherine

I try not to think about what would happen if Lady Rhea were harmed. I can't bear the thought of it.

Catherine

I'm not sure why the Fell King Nemesis picked right now to come back to life.

Catherine

But it makes me angry, that's for sure! Let's kick him back down into the dirt, where he belongs.

I hear some super strong and evil fellas are after Lady Rhea.

Cyril

She just barely made it back to Garreg Mach, and then this has to go and happen?

Cyril

I'll protect Lady Rhea as best I can, and you're gonna do the same thing, aren't ya, Professor?

Cyril

Yeah, I know ya will! Cut 'em down, Professor! Get every last one of those guys!

Judith

Did you hear? Our enemy is Nemesis. Unbelievable.

It sounds crazy, but there's no laughing it off.

Gatekeeper

Professor! I just have to say thanks! For everything! I'm on high alert today, so don't you worry about a thing.

Gatekeeper

This mysterious military force approaching Garreg Mach... Is it true that Nemesis is with them?!

Gatekeeper

It was Nemesis who led the 10 Elites against Saint Seiros. It's the stuff of legend.

Gatekeeper

But this time, he won't have the 10 Elites on his side. Right? He won't, right?!

A turning point in history can also be a chance for profit... At least, that's what I thought. But it's not working out that way.

Merchant

And now we have Nemesis to contend with. I can't catch a break!

Merchant

For our sake, please be victorious. If you lose, everything we've worked so hard for will have been for nothing.

Alliance Knight

Alliance Knight

Fódlan is essentially no more... We have nothing standing between us and Nemesis.

If we're defeated, the whole land will be in great danger.

Alliance Knight

We have no choice but to stake our lives on stopping the enemy.

Monk

Monk

Once Lady Rhea is fully recovered, she will resume her role as the archbishop of the church.

Monk

Once she's in her rightful place, we'll need a sovereign to lead all of Fódlan. I think you or Claude would be ideal.

Merchant

Merchant

I thought I'd be able to move a lot of merchandise with a big sale, to commemorate the beginning of the new age of peace.

Churchgoer

link
Churchgoer

Lady Rhea was injured?! How could such a thing happen?

Churchgoer

Wasn't she supposed to be resting? I can't believe she'd put herself in danger by going into battle in that state...

Churchgoer

Oh, Goddess... Please save Lady Rhea...

Soldier

Soldier

I thought there was no reason to fight anymore... That was a bit naive, I suppose.

Throughout my life, I'm always calculating—always trying to suss out what will happen next.

Yuri

But this? I never could've predicted Nemesis rising from his grave and coming to kill us all. Who'd have figured, you know?

Yuri

Then again, if I were able to predict everything, life would be a drag. I intend to lean into the chaos, heh heh.

Yuri

Cute. But not that cute right now. Anyway, we're backed into a corner, so may as well make the most of it, yeah?

Balthus

Balthus

In the end, I guess it's a good thing Holst isn't joining us...

Balthus

If Nemesis could rough up my buddy that bad, he must be tough as hell.

Balthus

Between the two of us, we can't lose. Not to mention our allies. We've escaped death, and we'll do it again.

Balthus

Damn straight! Between the two of us, we can't lose. Not to mention our allies. Death has nothin' on us.

I swear to avenge Holst! Huh? He doesn't have to be dead to be avenged. Don't play semantics with me!

Ancient sprawling remains deep below Garreg Mach... That's Abyss.
